#184 An Unexpected Church

Like a medieval castle it raises over the land – the church of Orlunda. Orlunda is not exactly a place you see from the highway. I first visited the small village about twenty years ago, as I drove around without a plan with my camera. As I understand, the church is closed at the moment….

#181 The Bridge

There is this bridge outside Luleå that I have wanted to shoot for a long time. The bridge is called ”Old Gäddvik Bridge” and is a classic construction that is often seen in Sweden. I just haven’t had a good opportunity to stop and make something nice of the bridge. This time I was lucky….

#179 About a Picture

Drove by this field as I was buying eggs from a nearby farm. The red poppies are beautiful – even though the farmer didn’t like them. As I was taking the picture he stopped his car beside me and said ”Are you photographing the misery…”. Then he laughed and said ”You are not the first….

#170 About a Picture

This morning I was on my way southbound along Lake Vättern. Usually I choose the freeway when I travel in my work, but this time I took the old highway part of the journey. When I got close to the small city Gränna I just had to stop and take out my camera. This time…

#168 Project update

In 2021 I starded a small project; visit all Nature Reserves in my county. There are only about 300 of them. My problem is that I never seem to finish my projects – I get bored or forget about them completley. However this is a project that I get help to remember. Both my wife…

#152 About a Picture

Have taken some days off from work and gone hiking in the Swedish mountains. No sun today, but still some fantastic moments. Just love the silence.

#144 About a Picture

It was a hot day in Sweden and everyone seeked the shadow. The cows found theirs under an old oak tree. A couple of them looked at me and seemed to be telling me; ”Why are you out there in the sun? Come over here instead…”.

#130 About a picture

Another picture from late January. It had been snowing all day, but in the afternoon it stopped. A clear and cold night was to be expected. A car has made deep tracks in the snow and low fog is starting to form. Lecia M4, Summicron 35 and Kodak Ektar 100

#119 About a picture

We went for a morning walk a beautiful morning in December last year. Not far from home we passed through this small Birch forest. I had my M4 loaded with Kodak Porta 400 and took a few shots. I like the soft, dreamy light in this picture. The whole forest is black and white in…

#92 And there were cows

The other day, we were driving around in Skåne – as far south you can get in Sweden. We were hungry for lunch, and drove to a famous golf club near the sea. The restaurant at the golf club was crowded (these days, it means that it is just over half full…). Well – we…

#84 Discovering a nearby café

The other day I went for a short drive nearby, with my daughter. The weather was nice, but the wind was a little chilly. On our way back we decided to have a cup of coffee at a nearby café in an old station building. We have passed the café [and restaurant] many times, but…

#71 At the Polar Circle

If you look at a map of the world, you will notice that there are few cities north of the Polar Circle. Sweden is one of the countries that stretch north of the circle. The Pictures in this post are from Jokkmokk in Sweden (situated almost exactly on the Polar Circle) shot in 2018 around…
